NBA FREE PICK: Take Chicago. According to latest NBA trends, the Bulls are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 Wednesday games, fave is 5-0 ATS L5 in series, 5-0 ATS L5 in series, Road team is 6-1 ATS L7 in series, 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. NBA Central and are 42-20-2 ATS in their last 64 games following a S.U. loss. Cleveland is 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Central. The Chicago Bulls visit the Cleveland Cavaliers seeking their 10th straight victory in the series. The Bulls shot 38.4 percent and committed 19 turnovers in Tuesday's 80-76 home loss to the Pacers. Cleveland suffered a 29-point loss to the Bulls here on Nov. 2, one of six double-digit setbacks for the Cavaliers this year. The latest one was Monday's 89-79 defeat in Detroit. Cleveland shot 33.7 percent, fell behind by 13 points in the opening quarter and dropped to 2-6 since losing point guard Kyrie Irving to a fractured finger. Besides Irving, the Cavaliers might be without rookie G Dion Waiters, who is day-to-day with a sprained left ankle. Those injuries forced coach Byron Scott to move Alonzo Gee from small forward to shooting guard and insert Omri Casspi at small forward. That hurts the bench and starting rotation and Chicago should take advantage with their sturdy defense.
